Timegate Partners with Orka Works for App Integration

Orka Works Logo TEAM Software by WorkWave has partnered with Manchester-based WorkerTech scaleup, Orka, to innovate the Facilities Management industry.

By developing an API integration between the next generation of Timegate and the digital hiring marketplace product Orka Works, their mutual customers can now seamlessly post shifts to a network with thousands of flexible, vetted workers.

The collaboration will enable hundreds of Timegate clients on the next generation platform, including Sodexo, Wilson James and OCS, to automatically post shifts to Orka Works, the UK’s largest security workforce provider, instantly connecting the unfilled shift to a community of over 65,000 flexible workers. Not only does the integration streamline admin and reduce manual work for TEAM Software by WorkWave users, but it will also play a big part in improving workers’ access to fair, fast and flexible work in the Facilities Management industry.

The new technology will bring over an estimated 200% increase in opportunities to the app this year and save over one hundred thousand hours of manual data entry every month for TEAM Software by Workwave users.

Christian Berenger, Director of Growth at TEAM Software by WorkWave, said: “The FM industry continues to face global hiring challenges. Creating convenient access to a qualified, vetted and flexible workforce will help our customers deliver on contract requirements, remain commercially viable and protect their company’s reputation.

to earn money is more relevant than ever. All whilst reducing manual tasks and heavy admin for one of the largest sectors in the UK economy.”
